Chapter Two

Joey swallowed the lump in his throat, then he opened his mouth to tell Seto the truth, but Seto was to close and all Joey could see were his blue eyes and smell his cologne and it was really affecting his libido.

Seto didn't know what to do except this, he kissed Joey on the lips and as he lifted his head, he saw tears in Joey's eyes and then Seto said, "If what you said was the truth, then I have to tell you that I've been in love with you for years too."

Joey couldn't believe what he was hearing. He then whispered, "It was the truth. I've wanted to tell you before, but never found the courage."

Seto pulled Joey into his arms and then he kissed him again, and this time Joey returned the kiss. When they broke apart because of lack of oxygen, Seto laid his head on Joey's and he whispered, "What do we do now?"

Joey then softly said, "Will you please stay the night with me?"

Seto kissed him and then he said, "I'd love to."

Joey then held out his hand to Seto and they walked to his bedroom, and he sat on the bed and looked at Seto and he said, "I've never been with anyone."

Seto sat down next to him, he put his arm around Joey's shoulder, and he whispered, "It'll be the first time for me too. We'll discover what to do together."

So magically, as they started touching and kissing each other their clothes seemed to disappear. Seto prepped Joey and as he eased into him, they both were transported to another time and place and when they came back to earth, they were changed forever and it was the greatest feeling in the world.

They fell asleep in each other's arms and the both had such a tranquil smiles on their faces.

Sometime during the night, Joey became aroused and as he started touching Seto, he became the dominate one and he prepped Seto and as Joey eased into Seto it was as if the Universe became one and stars burst brightly in the darkness.

In the morning when they both woke up, Joey snuggled against Seto, who sighed because for the first time in his life he felt content and satisfied.

Seto kissed Joey's lips and smiled as he opened his eyes and he blushed as he realized what had just happened. Seto gently touched Joey's face as he said, "How do you feel?"

Joey stretched and he said, "Like I have been reborn and it is the best feeling in the world."

They stayed in bed until noon, then they got up, showered had something to eat and Seto said, "I guess you had better call Yugi and let him know that you're still alive."

Joey chuckled as he reached for the phone. As he dialed the Motou residence, Seto kissed the back of his neck and it caused Joey to get goose bumps up and down his spine. When Yugi answered the phone, he heard Joey let out a small moan and he knew that they were together and he smiled as he heard Joey say, "Yug, I called to let you know that everything is alright."

Yugi then said, "You two did it last night, didn't you?"

Joey turned beet red and Yugi could hear Seto chuckle as he said, "Pup, you look so cute when you blush."

At the Motou residence:

The phone went dead, and Yugi knew that they were probably making love again. Yugi ran to the living room and all Yami saw was a blur as Yugi launched himself into Yami's arms and he whispered, "Seto and Joey are making love."

Yami then gave Yugi a hug and he said, "We need to call Tea and Mai and let them know that finally Joey and Seto are together, and when they finally come to tell us we then can plan some kind of party."

It was nearly four that afternoon before Seto and Joey left his house and went to talk to Yugi and Yami. When Seto pulled up out front of the Game Shop, they got out, the front door opened, and there stood Tea and Mai with the goofiest smiles on their faces.

When they got all went inside, the love that they felt was so strong, it really affected them, and tears filled both Seto and Joey's eyes.

Yami said, "Here's to Seto and Joey for finally finding each other."

Then Mai said, "I have a question, have either of you thought what will happen if the Press gets wind of this and prints things about the two of you?"

Joey nearly fainted when Mai said that and he turned to Seto and he said, "Then we don't let anyone know about us."

Seto smiled at him and he said, "That's going to be a little hard when every time I look at you it's because of the love I have for you."

Joey's eyes filled with tears when he said, "Then I won't be seen with you in public, we'll keep our relationship private and no one will ever find out."

Seto touched the side of Joey's face and he said, "Pup that's going to be pretty hard when you're going to be with me."

Joey softly said, "Seto, you have to think about your family and if this gets out how it will affect them."

Tea, Mai, Yugi and Yami were all near tears as they witnessed Seto and Joey try to figure out how they could still be together and not have the press find out.

Seto then said, "Alright, if it will make you feel better then let's go talk to my parents and see what they think about us."

It was settled, they would go talk to Seto's parents and hopefully they wouldn't object to them being together. As Yugi and the others said good-bye, Yugi said, "I hope that things will work out for them."

As Seto drove home, Joey sat beside him and he hoped that Seto's family wouldn't be against them. He really loved Seto and didn't want to have to leave in order for Seto to have peace with his parents.

When Seto pulled up outside the Manor, he turned to Joey and he said, "Even if they do object, I won't stop seeing you. I love you with all my heart."

As they walked inside, Mokuba was coming down the stairs and when he saw his brother and Joey together the biggest smile came across his face and he ran into the living room and said, "Seto's home and he's brought a friend with him."

They walked into the living room and Roland stood up and he said, "Welcome to our home."

He held out his hand and as Joey shook it, Seto said, "Mom, Dad I want to introduce you to Joey Wheeler."

Helga smiled as she noticed how tense her son was and as she stood up and walked over to them, she softly said, "How long have you been in love with my son?"

This question took both of them by surprise, the look on their faces caused Roland and Mokuba to burst out laughing, and soon Helga was joining her husband and son.

Seto looked at Joey and then they looked at Seto's parents and brother as if they all had been possessed and then Roland said, "Son, there isn't anything wrong with us. We've known for a while now that you were different and it doesn't matter to us. As long as you both are happy, then we are too."

Helga looked at her son and she asked him, "Seto, what's really bothering you?"

Joey spoke up and he said, "What will happen if the press finds out that Seto and I are together?"

Mokuba was quiet until now and he said, "To hell with them, they can't tell my brother who he can and can't love!"

Helga smiled at her youngest son and then she said, "Mokie, you're right about that, but they can make it hard on your brother being the CEO of Kaiba Corp."

Seto put his arm around Joey and he said, "Then I'll step down and let someone else run the company. I'm not about to lose the Joey now that we've finally found each other."

Roland went over to them and he said, "Alright, this is what we'll do. Tomorrow we'll go talk to an old friend of mine at the Gazette and you both can tell him how you feel and let him write a column about it. Maybe if it's done properly then no one will object to the two of you being together."

Seto hugged hid dad and he said, "I love all of you for being so understanding about Joey and me. We were afraid that you'd object to us being together."

The next day Roland, Seto and Joey went to the Gazette, spoke to a Mr. Darby, and told him their story.

When he heard what they had to say, he smiled at them and he said, "It's great that you have decided to come out and let the world know that you love each other. Don't worry, I'll write a very sensitive story about the rights of anyone to love each other and that no one has the right to condemn them because they are different."

Roland thanked his old friend and as they were leaving Mr. Darby said, "You've given me the courage to tell the world that I too have someone that I love and that his name is James. Thank you both for allowing me to write your story."

Roland opened the paper there was the article written by Mr. Darby.

"Love comes in different sizes, shapes and yes even sexes."

By Donald Darby

The other day two young men came to talk to me about how they were afraid to come out and let the world know that they were in love with each other.

As I listened to them speak it became apparent that they were deeply in love and that nothing was going to keep them from loving each other.

I have never been more proud of anyone as I was of these two young men. They are willing to give up everything if they have to stay together, and I for one applaud them for having the courage to come out and admit their love for one another.

When they were done, and as they were leaving, I told them, "It was because of their love for one another it has given me the courage to come out and tell the readers of this paper that I too have a male lover and that I'm proud to say that he is the reason that I want to live.

Therefore, in closing all I can say is, "No one has the right to dictate who can and can't fall in love. We are people who have rights and one of them is to be able to love who we want and not be afraid to let the world know."

Tears filled Roland's eyes as he read the article and how proud he was of not only of Seto and Joey but of Donald for being courageous enough to tell the world that they we in love and that no matter what they were going to remain in love.

When Yugi, Yami, Tea, Mai and the other hundred readers read the article there was mixed emotions, but all in all everyone agreed with one thing "That no one had the right to tell anyone else who they could or couldn't love."

Three weeks later in a beautiful Ceremony in the back of the Manor, Seto and Joey got married, as they exchanged rings and the Minister announced that they were now life mates, their family and friend erupted in cheers.

They have received tons of letters and e-mails from all over the world telling them that because of their courage to talk about their love for each one another that others are coming out and letting the world know that they too are in love and that nothing will ever stop them from loving each other.
